Play show or right-click to download Show 4 - The Edinburgh Bands

This time it's local....

Everything's been done in a bit of a rush this week as life has managed to get in the way and alter my usual plans. But nevertheless the Three From Leith podcast is proud to bring you three Edinburgh bands who've really opened my eyes.

I'm amazed at the wealth and breadth of the talent that exists here in Edinburgh. I knew there were bands playing, but I didn't know just how professional and talented they were ! I'd been sitting here thinking that most of the talent was based in Glasgow after listening to what Mark at the Tartanpodcast was showcasing. I couldn't have been more wrong ! That'll teach me to be so blind to what's going on around me...

I'm therefore really happy to be able to bring these bands to the fore and to get them out there. So if you're a band based in or around Edinburgh, or know someone who's in one, drop me a line and introduce yourself / yourselves. Why not email me a track or send me a CD (email me for the address). There are more local band shows coming soon on Three From Leith, so make sure you book your place on them !

So please enjoy the following bands, and if you like what you hear please visit the artists' websites and drop them a line. I know that they'd be chuffed to bits to hear from you and what you think of their music - so go on; make their day ! Tell 'em that Grant from Three From Leith sent you...

Triptamine - I Am Abstract

Opal Sky - Special Suzie

Slowjet - Black Cross

Special thanks to Denis Kitchen for the background music (Cebrella) and intro (Groove IT)

There will definitely be a lot more coming from Edinburgh bands soon, plus something very special which will be exclusive to Three From Leith, so stay subscribed and don't miss it !

And remember to leave your comments below and let me know what you think. Say something. I dare ya !!
